About Ruby and Ruby On Rails
Ruby is an object oriented, interpreted, programming language. During 2006, it emerged from relative obscurity to become one of the fastest growing languages globally. According to the January 2007 TIOBE index of programming language popularity (http://www.tiobe.com/tpci.htm), Ruby now stands at position 10 (an eleven place rise during the past year alone); Ruby is now above Delphi, COBOL and Ada, and just beneath JavaScript, Python and C#.

Ruby On Rails (‘Rails’) is a web application framework for Ruby. It enables developers to create interactive, data-driven, applications such as Blogs, Wikis and eCommerce sites. Ruby On Rails won the Jolt Award for the best Web Development Tool of 2006.
